Must reads in food politics this week


I’m traveling this week and can’t keep up with the food politics reading.  Here’s what I’m not able to comment on until I get some more time:

The BMJ’s article on the Minnesota Heart Study and its never-published data casting doubt on the risks of saturated fat (here’s what the Washington Post says about it).
The Guardian’s article on the “sugar conspiracy“
The study demonstrating an increase in BPA and phthlates in the blood of people eating fast food
The draft of the House Agricultural Appropriations bill

I’m interested to hear your thoughts on any or all of these.  I will catch up with them eventually…

What do you think?
